After having lived together through the lost year of 2020-21, many of my long-held beliefs regarding this country have sadly slipped away. Like many of us, when the lockdowns first began, I believed the directives were basically suggestions from the government that, for our own protection, we needed to close everything down for 15 days. Let’s face it, nearly everyone was scared out of their minds listening to the “experts” saying this would probably kill millions of Americans in 2020, and we complied out of duty and obligation to other citizens and our families. We were only doing what seemed prudent. We were sure we would come out

Good article. "Flatten the curve" was one of the biggest lies ever. Right up there with "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor." The only thing that got flattened was the United States of America. Oh, and the Church.

“... then Biden doesn’t understand the meaning of Independence Day.” These days Xiden doesn’t even understand about 95% of what is going on around him. When we lived in Romania during the communist reign of terror that was the Ceausescu husband and wife, we used to wonder why the population didn’t rise up and take back their country. We learned that Romania had been under one dictatorial government or another for hundreds of years and that the people knew nothing else. But we also learned that there was a saying which was left over from the Ottoman occupation and which the people lived by - “The bowed head does not attract the sword”. I never thought I would see that attitude in my own country, yet here it is. From mask shaming and lockdowns to cancel culture to re-education for those who disagree to the power grab in DC which no one is hindering much less stopping, most of the country is bowing their heads.

Individual freedoms—ranging from the right to vote to freedom of expression and equality before the law—can be affected by state or non-state actors."

Not all of us. 5/13/2020 Enough already! "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!" This so-called lock down is total BS. Tomorrow I am going fishing, then I am getting in my car and driving to Great Falls for the weekend. We have no active cases in the entire county. I will be 80 years old in a couple of months and I refuse to spend the time I have left cowering in fear in my basement because the MSM says I should. One size does not fit all. Let New York, New Jersey and California do whatever they want, as for me I have had enough. To hell with the Fascists who want to lock down forever, I WILL NOT COMPLY!

We have just experienced a coup on Nov 3, 2020, and the imposition of a communist dictator. The Capitol is surrounded by troops. It is the left's revolution, their fundamentally changing America forever. The election laws are rapidly being changed to ensure there is never an "election" the left does not win. The Bill of Rights has been nullified by the politicians and the CEO's of our corporations. Our law enforcement protects the coup, not the country. And the Republicans, always stupid idiots, have helped the Democrats do it. Small businesses are eliminated in socialism. That is rapidly being accomplished. The government really controls private businesses, setting all the rules that matter, and taking half the revenue. Individuals do not make any decisions, not even about themselves. We live in a police state with a socialist government. You do not decide anything. Poverty in this country is due to poor choices, not anything else. We are forced to take our earnings and pay for it. That is not a choice. We are not free.

Many here pointed out that this was manufactured - by politicians, Big Medicine, media, and the other scare porn purveyors. Many here suggested with would go on ad infinitum, that new exuses and phony numbers would always be pulled out of "science" and "statistics" (which doesn't apply similarly to election results), and that mutations would be the next boogeymen. And here we are. The media still cranks out sob stories while it champions infected mobs to cross into the US and disperse with government assistance. I need to show a $250 COVIDS clean bill to come home; the mob shows nothing and walks in. What's wrong with this? Foreign government quarantine for 14 days at a travelers expense. The US Government hands them a stimulus check and a ticket to ride. And virtually no one says boo. No, seriously, not even the esteemed W-clone governor of Texas. He sends NG troops for show...observe and report to authorities who fail in their duty. Oh, well, he ended his mask mandate. Yeah, a real profile in courage in the midst of a COVIDS-infected invasion.

A lot of "experts" were also saying that there was a 98% survival rate if you caught Covid - assuming you weren't in a high risk category. Most people not in the high risk category could have been going about their business for the last year rather than be locked down. Instead we had a lot of politicians deciding who was "essential" and who wasn't (that's an eye opener in itself). The one that really put things in perspective was the guy who, unfortunately, died in a motorcycle accident in Florida and was counted as Covid. https://wpde.com/news/nation-world/man-who-died-in-motorcycle-crash-counted-as-covid-19-death-in-florida-report-07-18-2020 By the way, what's going on with flu season this year? A lot of those wouldn't be chalked up to Covid, now would they?

“Nearly everyone was scared out of their minds.” That’s the problem, right there. Why would any American believe what a politician says about anything? This country seems to be largely run by criminal and largely foreign enterprises. The proof? Now that millions of American-owned legit businesses have failed because of COVID mandates let’s see what comes in to take their place.

Democratic political strategist Doug Schoen says the situation at the border is a “full on crisis” and the media is using a double standard to cover the increasingly tense situation while speaking to the Daily Caller’s Brianna Lyman, “We have a crisis, a full on crisis,” Schoen said. “Unless the Biden administration takes the issue on forcefully, we will have a full on crisis of politics and more important substance as we go forward.” Schoen said one of the causes for the recent surge at the border is that the Democratic Party won’t promote a bipartisan immigration policy.

Late last week after Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion Democratic constituency payoff bill disguised as “COVID relief,” most Americans started getting $1,400 payments from Uncle Sam.That doesn’t seem like much money given the fact that tens of millions of Americans suffered lengthy financial hardship over the past year governors shut down their states and as Democrat governors continued to keep their states essentially locked down for months afterward. But even that paltry amount of money will seem even less if Democrats pass Biden’s new tax legislation, which contains the largest increase since 1993.

During an interview over the weekend with ABC News, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi bizarrely blamed President Joe Biden’s border crisis on climate change. Since Biden took office, immigrants have flooded the border, many of whom are children.Pelosi said, “There are more children, about 600, 700 more children, unaccompanied children coming over the border. This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us. What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they are working to correct that in the children’s interest.

Florida students were shocked to learn that President Joe Biden recently opened holding cells — which some call “cages” — for migrant children at the border, and that former President Donald Trump had actually signed an order that stopped family separation at the border.One student said that she found the revelations, “shocking,” adding, “everyone made Trump look like a bad image, and [Biden]’s basically doing the same thing.”Another student, however, expressed that she was not shocked, and that she expects that “from here on out, it’s probably going to get worse.”Campus Reform released a video of the students’ reactions, in which reporter Addison Smith interviewed several students.

President Joe Biden hasn’t been in the White House long — just under two months — but he already appears to be growing weary of its confines.As noted by the Associated Press, Biden has spent three of his eight weekends as president at his longtime home outside Wilmington, Del., with another weekend spent at Camp David, the presidential retreat, located at Catoctin Mountain Park, Frederick County, Md. Nevertheless, while describing the White House as a “magnificent building,” to Biden, apparently, the 132-room mansion is also stifling.“Many presidents have complained at one point or another about feeling confined in the White House.
